Amazing location, tasty food

Well well well, what is this???? A lovely property nearly 2000 years old and very well restored. Came here in sept and now back in jan and the food and service never disappoints... Very attentive staff and the food is fantastic.. I recommend the prawn cocktail and the mixed seafood dish, a whole sea bass, king prawns, and squid.. Amazing.... More

Great evening after a day at the Vatican. Looking for a reasonable eatery near to our hotel and this seemed to fit the bill. Staff were very at tentative and helpful, had the house wine and it was excellent; other wines seemed expensive seeing the Mrs doesn't really drink, but she enjoyed this offering. The meal was OK+ , all... More

We ate here on the last night of our break in Rome. After reading the reviews we decided to give this little gem a go and it didn't disappoint. One of the most appealing attractions apart from the setting (a 2000 year old Roman tower) was the menu which didnt have a pizza in sight. Don't get me wrong obviously... More

12 of us ate here to celebrate a special birthday. We were made very welcome. The food and wine were reasonably priced and the quality was excellent. The only slight downside was that the food was a bit on the cool side although this isn't unique in Rome.

If you are looking for a real Italian meal, this is the place to be. Waiters are really nice and the limoncello is very tasty and free ;-)

This is by far the best restaurant we went to in Rome, the food is truly Italian and tastes incredible. The service is amazing, they are very efficient and speak good English so they can talk to you about the menu. It looks like quite a small place from the outside but it really does expand when you go in,... More

Food and service was impeccable friendly staff even to a non speaking Italiano. All the suggestions were accurate and on par. Overheard several folks on how good the food was and the value was excellent.

Went here twice on our recent trip to Rome as it was just up the road from our hotel. Had a good meal both times with delicious food and excellent service. We all really enjoyed the guitar player on the second visit - he made the evening. On the second visit I dropped some money on the floor on leaving... More

We had dinner here the night after eating at Allessio which is immediately across the street. They make a good comparison and in my view Allessio wins because its dishes are better cooked and generously portioned. Diocleziano is ok but the cooking is basic. The service was friendly and prompt.

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
